Wilton Method Instructor

I’ve been meaning to blog about my coordinating job with Stahrs Cakes.  I am a Wilton Method Instructor at Hobby Lobby.  I have taught my first month of classes and am on my second month.  It’s been so fun!  I love seeing the students excited about decorating cakes the way I am.

I started in March and my first Decorating Basics class was awesome!  I will not be giving names of my students ever but I would like to post their final project cakes here.  These are in no particular order.  The students worked very hard on these cakes.  The final project was to bake and ice a cake smooth.  They could torte and fill it if they wanted to but it was not required.  Then, in class, they had about an hour to decorate their cakes based on what they learned in the course.  I was so very impressed!  They should be very proud of themselves…I know I’m proud of them.

I can’t wait to see what this month holds for my students.  I have a Decorating Basics class and a Flowers and Cake Design class.  I can’t wait to see their final projects at the end of the month. 

So a little information about the Wilton Method Cake Decorating classes at Hobby Lobby…You can go to this website to see all the information about the classes that I hold.  Also you can see the schedule of classes coming up.  You can also go to your local craft store, such as Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or Joann’s to name a few, and ask about the classes they have going on there. 

This is so exciting for me.  Not only do I get to brush up on my basic decorating skills, I am teaching others to create cakes they are proud to serve.  So check out cake decorating classes at your local craft store today!

Cake Pops!

I am so excited to announce that we are offering Cake Pops!  I mean, really, what’s not to love about these treats?  Cake, icing, all mushed together, and on a convenient stick!  Bakerella really knew what she was doing when she thought to make them into cute shapes. 

So I attempted to make the cupcake cake pops for my son’s school snack.  They are celebrating his birthday tomorrow since his actual birthday is during Spring break.  I used chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream.

I dipped them into dark chocolate for the cupcake part.  I inserted the stick and let that dry completely.  Then I dipped the tops into green vanilla because that is my son’s favorite color.  Then used some colorful nonpareils for the sprinkles and topped them off with a red M & M candy for the cherry on top.

My son was thrilled to see these displayed, knowing he will be sharing them with his friends tomorrow!

I also made some circle cake pops just to see how they would turn out.  This was my first attempt.  I used a few different colors for the candy coating and a few different toppings.

These are available for shipping, just in case you were wondering! 😉

Trains and Holiday Sale

A customer wanted to have a boy and a girl train for a birthday party that she was throwing for her daughter and her friend’s son.  I was so excited.  This is my most favorite cake to decorate.  We decided on red and blue for the boy cake…

and pink and purple for the girl cake…

The cake is yellow butter cake with chocolate buttercream.  I tinted white icing for the colorful accents.  I used fudge stripes mini cookies for the wheels, shoe string licorice for the cow catcher and train ties, various candies for the cars to carry, and rollos and Hershey kisses for the smoke stack.  Oh and don’t forget the Oreos for fuel!  It’s a fun cake, no matter what age you are!

Now onto the sale…We are excited that it is the Christmas holiday season!  Fudge, cookies, peppermint bark just to name a few goodies of the season.  So since we love this holiday season so much, we are extending some holiday cheer your way. 

If you buy one pound of peppermint bark, you get another for free!  This item is available for shipping and makes a great stocking stuffer or a yummy addition to a holiday party.  So call or email us for your order today!

Yummy Fall Treats Sale!

The Fall season is bursting with lots of flavors!  In this house, you know it’s Fall when pumpkin chip muffins are being made.

Pumpkin whoopie pies with chocolate or vanilla filling…

Pumpkin bundt cake with a streusel filling and a chocolate glaze (or citrus, if you prefer)

Pumpkin chip muffins (regular sized or mini!)

There are also pumpkin pie and pumpkin fudge to choose from in the pumpkin catagory.  There is also shoo fly cake for those who love the flavor of molasses.  Apple pie, apple crisp, and pear oatmeal cookies are some Fall fruity goodies that we offer. 

So why am I telling you all about our Fall yummy-ness?  I’m so pleased that you asked ;-)!  We are having a Fall sale.  You can buy one item and get another item half off!  The items do not need to be the same either.  Say you want a pumpkin bundt cake to serve for an office party but need some pumpkin chip muffins because they are that good.  You can order a dozen muffins and the cake and only pay full price for one.  Or say you really like the muffins and need 2 dozen (or 3 or 4) the second (or 3rd or 4th) is 50% off.  I think you’re getting it now! 

This offer is good until the end of November!  You can email or call with questions or to order.

Open House details

Here are the goodies that I made for the open house. I made the stacking strawberries.

 I also made some chocolate cake

There were chocolate peanut butter mini cupcakes with peanut butter icing…

Cherry, Banana, and Spearmint hard candy (shaped into little stars, of course)…
And the cake that made me the happiest to make. The Car Cruiser. Turns out I just need to use a lighter cake recipe, such as my classic white cake, in the pan to have the cruiser turn out.
I used oreo cookies for the wheels.
 
M & M candies for the lights and vanilla icing tinted black and red. I used white sparkle gel icing for the windows.
I was happy with the outcome. My son, however, was disappointed that I did not make it green! Maybe next time.
